PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE 

         
  The Rockland County Shields Golf Outing was held on October 1st and it was a huge success.  I would like to thank Ramapo Trustee Mike Higgins (and committee) for doing a great job.

On Saturday, October 20th, the Rockland County law enforcement community remembered the events of the Brinks Robbery with a memorial service on Mountainview Avenue in Nyack.  This annual commemoration for Sergeant Edward O'Grady, Officer Waverly "Chipper" Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige reminds us of a very dark day in Rockland County back in 1981. 

The Shields is going paperless.  We will be sending the Newsletter out by email.  The set up will take a few months so please be patient as we make this transition.

We want to ensure that we send it to your preferred email address.  We are asking all members (that have an email address) to send an email to:
                                                      rcshieldsnews@gmail.com
Please include your name and member number.  You will receive a confirmation email.  During the first few months we will send out the Newsletter by email and by US Mail.
Also, many business emails may not permit attachments, so please consider using a personal email address.  All email addresses will be kept confidential and will not be shared with any other organizations or businesses.  

We ask those members who do NOT have email capability to contact any Board member, as soon as possible, so we can continue to send you a standard printed Newsletter. 

The October General Membership Meeting (at Casa Mia, on Route 303 in Blauvelt) is Candidates Night.  It is your opportunity to see (and hear from) the people running for office in Rockland County.

                                                                                                                                    Ed Weireter
